Chicago EDM fans got a little pre-festival season surprise this week. In a piece on Electric Daisy Carnival’s first foray into the Windy City, The Chicago Tribune leaked the festival’s initial lineup, with heavyweights Tiesto, Armin Van Buuren, David Guetta, Avicii and Above & Beyond slated to headline. The lineup has not been confirmed on the event’s website, but Pasquale Rotella is quoted extensively in the article and no denial has been issued.
Check the full leaked lineup after the break and click here to buy tickets. EDC Chicago will touch down at the Joliet Speedway May 24-26.
Robert Sillerman, entertainment mogul and head of SFX Entertainment, has declared an arms race on EDM enterprises with a billion dollar budget. After purchasing Donnie Disco Presents and the company formerly known as DayGlow, Sillerman has remained relatively quiet — until now. The billionaire has now purchased a large stake in Miami’s The Opium Group, which manages Mansion, SET, Cameo and Mokai Lounge. After acquiring power of a large portion of Miami’s nightlife scene, the rumors continued to surface, and it appears as if Sillerman has just begun an EDM shopping spree.
Last weekend we took an adventure through the darkness in Southern California at Nocturnal Wonderland. Insomniac’s Wonderland series, a growing production due to its popularity, continues this week in the San Francisco Bay Area. Representing the official close of the summer festival circuit, the next Wonderland ventures further north to bring the fanciful world to the inaugural Beyond Wonderland Bay Area.
Because of Insomniac’s unique branded formula of turning fantasy into reality, we expect nothing less from Saturday’s festival. Their trademark theatrical productions, interactive art installations, and a stunning lineup spread over three stages are a welcome reminder of the summer EDM season. While only one day, Insomniac has put together a lineup robust enough to satisfy most fans’ tastes.
Best of the Rest is a daily feature from Dancing Astronaut that recaps the most important posts of the day as well as the stuff we didn’t get to. With the rapidity that dance music news and releases come out it’s difficult for us to hit everything — we hope BOTR serves as a catch-all. Make sure to check it out at the end of each day to ensure you don’t miss anything!
Insomniac made its first move in New York earlier this year with the inaugural EDC NY, and the massive event company looks to continue its American expansion. We’re hearing from sources familiar with Insomniac’s plans that the company will be bringing its Beyond Wonderland event to the San Francisco Bay Area this September. While this information is (for now) unconfirmed, we’re hearing that the event will touch down in late September, with Saturday the 29th being the most likely date currently being thrown around.
Beyond Wonderland has previously been relegated to San Bernadino, taking place at the NOS Event Center for the past three years, while one event was held in Seattle. Our sources could not pinpoint an exact location for the San Francisco event, but it’s safe to say it will be large. (The most recent installment drew over 45,000 people in March.) We expect to hear more soon, so stay tuned!
